Elon Musk has called for the ‘break up’ of on tech giant Amazon following a dispute over a coronavirus e-book.
The entrepreneur came to the defense of an author after rejecting his book about the coronavirus epidemic in Amazon's Kindle publishing department.
Musk tagged Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos in a tweet, calling the decision "insane" and adding: "It's time to break up Amazon."
Amazon said the book was accidentally deleted and will be reinstated.
The author of the book, Alex Berenson, drew Mr. Kasturi's attention by tweeting a screenshot from Amazon, which told him that his book on epidemics did not meet the guidelines.
"They censored it!" Mr. Berenson wrote. "It's based entirely on published official data and scientific papers. It doesn't say the coronavirus is real or kill people."
Musk has been critical of government policies during the Carnavirus epidemic.
He had previously described the shutdown orders as "fascist" and threatened to remove Tesla's headquarters from California when no manufacturing facilities were allowed to reopen.
Musk and Bezos compete in the competition to make space travel more affordable.
Musk founded SpaceX eight years before Mr Bezos started his rocket firm Blue Origin.
Last year, Mr Bezos criticised Mr Musk's hope of creating a Mars colony.
According to Business Insider, he said: "My friends who want to move to Mars? I say do me a favour: Go live on the top of Mount Everest for a year first and see if you like it because it's a garden paradise compared to Mars."-Internet
